Was curious to hear what my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ thought about the other perverted versions of the Bible, especially NIV. ESV is ok but KJV is certainly the only way to go. There are so many perversions in the NIV it disgusts me. Some would say anyone who reads the NIV is not a true christian. I am not prepared to make a judgemnt but I will say that they are certainly ignorant and misguided. One example (and there are plenty of them) and probably the worst is the way in which the NIV downplays Gods role as Jesus's father. KJV says "And JOSEPH and his mother marveled at those things which were spoken of him." The NIV reads "The CHILD'S FATHER and mother marveled at what was said about him." This is simply disgraceful as the NIV is clearly implying that Joeseph was the father of Jesus. It's almost as if the NIV wasn't even written down by true believers. We should do a much better job as Christians of warning people about this perverted version of the Bible. I think this cartoon pretty much sums it up.
